I home school my son through a virtual charter school, K12. Today I had to meet with "team" at our local public elementary school for his IEP.
I was told today that after 6 years old, they don't have autism any more. My guy is 6, so anyday now his autism behaviors should just magically go away. I was speechless for a few minutes, and when I regained my thoughts, just had to ask when it was going to go away. At six and a half? A month before his seventh birthday? The day before his sixth birthday?
I never got an answer. These are people who supposedly know about and educate kids.
I did get extra time for him during standardized testing though, which is all I wanted.
